Oversikt

Discover the temples, lively cities and tranquil mountains of Japan

Ancient wooden temples, raked-gravel Zen gardens and chanting Buddhist monks juxtaposed with space-age towers, neon lights and bullet trains; the blend of old and new in Japan is captivating. As we explore the southern and western stretches of Honshu, the largest island in Japan, we discover unique culture among the serene shrines and gardens of Nara and Kyoto and the rarely visited mountainous heartland of castles and spas. Our last stop is the vast and futuristic capital city of Tokyo: sprawling, inimitably busy, welcoming and extraordinary.

Food
Eight breakfasts and three dinners are included. Japanese cuisine is usually a highlight of any Japan trip. It is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes usually prepared with seasonal ingredients. Seafood is common, and usually comes grilled or deep fried. Sushi and sashimi aside, other staple dishes include soba or udon noodles, sukiyaki (meat, fish and vegetables cooked in broth) and yakiniku (grilled meat). The included dinners are usually taken at traditional guesthouses, which will serve a kaiseki-style dinner, a multi-course meal including a dozen tiny dishes prepared with locally sourced seasonal ingredients. When food is not included, your leader can always recommend the best local eateries and arrange group meals for a full immersion in the varied and excellent local cuisine. Please note, in Japan the availability of certain specialised products for restricted diets (eg gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan) is minimal or non-existent. The group meals arranged by the tour leader will be in traditional eateries where the choices of vegan dishes may be limited to simple salads or boiled rice. However, several vegan restaurants are available in Kyoto and Tokyo. It may be a good idea to bring some foodstuffs with you that you normally consume, or to supplement meals with snacks purchased in the local convenience stores. Please advise us at time of booking you have any specific dietary requirements.
Weather

Japan has four very distinct seasons. We avoid the extremely cold winters and humid summers and settle for the more pleasant climes of spring and autumn. In Tokyo, September and October are warm, maximum temperatures are 26C (79F) and minimum 12C (54F). September is likely to be the warmer of the two and there is a likelihood of rain. April is cooler with temperatures possibly going as low as 7C (45F) with a high of 17C (63F). Kyoto is very similar climatically to Tokyo but the higher up into the mountains we venture, the colder it will become with nights being especially cold, particularly in March and November.

Is this trip for you?

This trip has been rated Activity Level 3 (Moderate).

This is a cultural trip encompassing the varying aspects of Japan, from the serenity and history of Kyoto to the electrifying modernity of Tokyo. You will walk mostly in cities and towns; although not strenuous, the amount of walking each day is considerable and fast-paced (we recommend comfortable walking shoes). A lot of temples and shrines will be visited during the trip, most of which are built on hillsides. This will mean ascending and descending lots of steps, so good fitness levels are essential.

All transport will be by public transport and mainly trains, which are extremely efficient. Therefore, it is essential all group members are punctual to ensure we do not miss any of the services. Some of the distances covered are long, but trains are very comfortable making the journey pleasant. As Japanese trains usually have little room for storing bags, we only carry our daypack/overnight bag for the two nights in Takayama and one night in Yudanaka. A courier service will transfer one piece of baggage per person from Kyoto to Matsumoto and then to Tokyo.

Please note, the order of activities in Kyoto and Tokyo may change depending on the weather conditions and other factors. Your tour leader will provide full details of the schedule during the welcome briefing.
